Cheryl Cole has been transferred to a private clinic after doctors declared the malaria-stricken star was now “out of danger”.

A spokesman for
The X Factor judge said that she would remain there until she was fully recovered.

“Cheryl Cole today came out of intensive care and has left UCLH,” he said in a statement.

“She has now been transferred to a private clinic where she will remain for her recovery.”

Cheryl was found to have the potentially fatal disease after she collapsed during a photoshoot last Saturday.

The 27-year-old was originally thought to be suffering from exhaustion but was rushed to hospital on Sunday after her symptoms worsened and she developed a soaring fever.

Cheryl spent two hours in intensive care at London’s Cromwell Hospital before being transferred to the capital’s Hospital For Tropical Diseases, where she has been receiving treatment this week.

It is thought she contracted the disease while on holiday in Tanzania last month with US dancer Derek Hough – despite taking anti-malaria tablets.

She has also been forced to pull out of judging The X Factor auditions after cancelling all her work commitments while she recovers.

On Friday Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, standing in for new mum Dannii Minogue at the Manchester auditions, said, “Cheryl’s here in spirit.”
